Deploying a Corporate Learning System at the Innovative Startup
The article discusses an empirical study that was conducted by the
authors, in which they surveyed focus groups of young innovative entrepreneurs
who are at different stages of creating their own projects. The
authors devote particular attention to how training programs for the
founders and staff should be implemented as the startup develops from
its early phases into a sustainable-growth business.
Inferences on the development and morphology of extinct brachiopods must be informed by the ontogeny and shell ornamentation of extantbrachiopods. Although the adult shells of extant brachiopods are wellstudied,detailed descriptions of the embryonic and juvenile shells of extant lingulides are lacking. Here, we describe in detail the shells of juveniles of Lingula anatina Lamarck, 1801 from Vietnam and the Republic of the Philippines. The following previously unknown properties of the lingulide shell are described: (i) a distinct border between the protegulum and the brephic shell; (ii) drapes that develop on both the protegulum and brephic shell; and (iii) the notched anterior margin of the brephic shell. The drapes and cogs on the brephic shell may becaused by the formation of setal follicles during the planktonic stage. Specimens of L. anatina from the Philippines have larger brephic shells than those from Vietnam probably because the former have a longer planktonic stage. Based on comparisons of the first-formed shells of extant brachiopods with published data on fossil brachiopods, we suggest that the life cycle of extant lingulides, in which planktotrophic juveniles with a shell hatch from the egg envelopes, is the mostevolutionarily advanced brachiopod life cycle and appeared in the Early Silurian. We suggest criteria for determining the type of life cycle based on the structure of the first-formed shell of brachiopods. Finally, we consider hypothetical scenarios of life cycles of fossil brachiopods including true planktotrophic larvae in the Cambrian linguliforms.
The purpose of this article is to provide a mathematical model to numerically estimate the parameters of the life cycle of the technical documentation on high-tech enterprises. Methodology of constructing such a model based on the consideration of statistical regularities of the life cycle of technical documentation involved in different projects. It uses data from the knowledge base of the enterprise. This work has revealed the basic rules of constructing mathematical models of similar estimates of the parameters of the life cycle of technical documentation as a result. This article is focused on the duration as a parameter of the life cycle. The constructed model analysis is universal and applicable to almost any high technology enterprise, which has its own knowledge base. Sure thing that the task of evaluating the various parameters of the life cycle of the technical paper is very relevant. Managers often must be aware of the total material costs of the project with a specific set of technical documentation before it starts. The constructed model is based on statistical regularities that exist for various projects in the enterprise, separated in time, thereby allowing the manager to have an idea about the project before it starts.

Relevance of statement and studying of a problem of entrepreneurial culture development of future managers is connected with features of development of the country, with orientation of the higher education to humanistic values and meanings. In our opinion the entrepreneurial culture can be considered in a context of cultures. The article presents a view on entrepreneurial culture in a context of "culture of usefulness and dignity". The entrepreneurial culture in the modern conditions, arisen as culture of usefulness, seeks to develop in itself lines of the personality significant culture, focused on dignity, "public understanding", the humanistic principle of "solidarity". Solving problems of modernization of the higher education, relying on competence-based approach, development of entrepreneurial culture in professional education of modern managers gets a special sense. Authors defined the basic principles and problems of the educational process directed on formation of entrepreneurial culture. Experience of faculty of management of NRU HSE in Nizhny Novgorod is presented in article, the program of entrepreneurial culture development of the youth is described. The program is realized consistently at three levels, each is caused by the purposes, methods, forms, age features of participants: The first level - "Formation of an image of the modern businessman". The second level – "An entrepreneurial mentality. First experience". The third level - "I am a businessman! ".
One of the most popular statements in the systemic transition literature since the second half of the 1990th is that different experiences of the CEE and Baltic states, on the one hand, and the most of the CIS countries, on the other hand, are embedded in different social norms and values, encouraging efforts in the new EU member states and preventing it in some of CIS countries.
The book contains teaching materials and notes on the study course “Entrepreneurship”.
